  1. Hand Tools
    Hello all, I'm relatively new at woodworking and I'm slowly building up my cache of tools. My most recent purchase has been a couple card scrapers and a burnishing rod. One of the scrapers (Bahco) showed up in the mail today and made me very curious about something. It arrived with a protective...

    I just recently started using wipe-on poly on a few projects and I have to say that I really like the results. The instructions on the can say wipe on with a rag or clean cloth. I was wondering what type of cloth (material) some of you LJs use and what technique you use to apply the poly ? -JJ

    I don't have a single straight, flat board in the workshop. Not a one. Not a piece of hardwood, softwood, plywood, or MDF. I'm trying to rectify that situation so that I can use some of this wood, and failing miserably. I am using the technique illustrated in this video, The 4-Square Method by...

    I needed some angle cuts that extended well past the limits of most protractors. I haven't been in school for more than forty years and never took geometry or any other class beyond basic math. As such, playing with complex formulas or compasses (which are mostly small and no less limited than...

    I'm looking to run a 1" thick board with 3" width through a 2" thick board, how do I make a very snug fitting opening? I've tried drilling holes in 4 corners, using a coping saw to cut most out and then filing down the excess, is this ideal? My file is too wide to finish the 1" thick side, so...

    I have found that when I'm in the mood to build something but nothing in particular strikes my fancy I generally turn to making a box. More often than not, they're pretty straightforward, but sometimes I look to try something different. As a result, I have a bunch of boxes with nowhere to go...
